I'm sorry that I wasn't very clear in my original message. My main  
point was that people might want to get right to the installation  
process rather than booting into the actual system first and then  
installing it. Perhaps there should be a possibility of booting into  
a stripped down version of the system that doesn't load any window  
manager but directly loads the installer on an otherwise empty  
screen, simply for speed purposes; it simply seems a little  
unnecessary to load the entire system in case the person installing  
it doesn't need to evaluate Ubuntu before deciding to do so.

This isn't a console-based expert installation mode in particular.
